Stunning barn conversion for sale for $US2.4 million
With its weather-worn wood exterior, this barn exudes all the rustic charm you’d expect of a home in picture-perfect Connecticut.
But it’s the renovated interiors that will impress most DIYers, with its eclectic mix of high-end finishes and original features such hand-hewn beams.
Built in 1926, this charming structure originally housed polo horses, and now sits on a 1.4-acre lot that includes groves of birch trees plus a pond.
The New Canaan property has been both extended and renovated and is now a six-bedroom family home.
With its high ceilings, wood floors and original beams, the home makes the most of its heritage, while the floor-to-ceiling windows provide plenty of much-needed natural light.
There are also plenty of practical modern features such as three fireplaces, industrial sinks, a large copper bath and undercover entertaining area out the back.
The property is split into two wings, leaving the master suite on one side with its own large bathroom, which has a raised marble shower area and a huge copper bath.
The property also has plenty of surprises, such as the upper nook in one of the bedrooms, which can be accessed using a wooden ladder.
This modernised Connecticut home is located in an area where the median house price is $US1.34 million, according to Realtor.
The property is currently on the market for $US2.4 million.
